HOW DO YOU HELP YOUR FRIENDS CATCH ON TO AN IDEA YOU’VE ALREADY CAUGHT?
# Try and get their attention
# Have them listen long enough for you to get to the good part
# Hope that they will understand your explanation
# See if they are interested
WHAT IF THERE WAS AN EASIER WAY?
One of the ways we have seen people really grab on to the idea of how Common Change works is through hosting what we call, ‘Generosity Dinners’.
# Invite some friends round for a meal that you are hosting
# each guest brings a donation to add to the group ‘pot’
# after the meal, each person has the chance to share a need of someone they know
# after a lengthy discussion and whittling down process, a decision is made
# the whole of the group ‘pot’ goes towards the need that was decided upon
# a follow-up email a few weeks later shares some feedback on how the gift went down.
BEING PART OF THE COMMON CHANGE NEED PROCESS PULLS THEM IN
Instead of trying to explain Common Change to your friends, you invite them to experience it and we help you through the whole process. As it becomes personal, so the likelihood of them wanting to try such a thing again increases.
